$$G\left[ u \right] = 0$$
be an equation of motion which governs the motion of a given system completely (differential equation with proper boundary conditions, Hamilton’s principle in its general form, etc.; cf. sect. 9). In general u will be an N-dimensional vector, cf. \(\underset{\raise0.3em\hbox{$\smash{\scriptscriptstyle\thicksim}$}}{x} \left( {\underset{\raise0.3em\hbox{$\smash{\scriptscriptstyle\thicksim}$}}{X} ,t} \right)\) in section 1.2.
